When: Fri., July 7, 10 p.m. 2017
The Deslondes are straight from the bayou. The quintet takes its name from a residential New Orleans street that dead-ends right at the Mississippi River. You can almost see this countrified rhythm and blues band busking at the water’s edge on tracks such as the peppy “One of These Lonesome Mornings,” the languid “She Better Be Lonely” and the gospel-infused “Hurry Home.” All come from the group’s brand-new album, also titled Hurry Home, which was written collaboratively by all five members. Their laid-back, timeless sound is a welcome distraction in a world buzzing with modernity. Catch the Deslondes on Friday, July 7, at Club Metronome in Burlington, with support from Esther Rose and locals the Welterweights.
